21 that all
of them may be one, Father,
just as you are in me and I am in you.
May they also be in us so that

God has given various people the
number 100 million intercessors over the years in
Eric Watt, Jason Hubbard (IPC), and team have visited IHOPKC a
number of times over recent years.
They represent and
5,000+ prayer networks
include 130 million
(at first I found those numbers hard to believe). In their recent visit (Dec. 2022), they shared that the leaders of these
5,000+ prayer networks and the 130 million intercessors connected to them
will stand together to pray for the same area of the
earth 4 times in 2023
in a global mission initiative called 110cities.com.
I am overwhelmed as I consider that this is the
first time in history that over 100 million believers
will pray for the same geographical area together on the same day
(see Jn. 17:21-23).
These 100 million prayed for China on January 22, 2023.
They will pray for the Middle East on April 17,
for Israel on May 28,
and for India on October 31.
These 100 million believers
committed to Jesus and to
but many of them are
not yet connected
to the Lord’s biblical purpose for Israel.
But for one day (May 28, 2023)
100 million will pray for Israel as they did for China on January 22.
But for 21 days leading up to May 28,
1 million+ intercessors will fast and pray
asking the “Holy Spirit to ambush” them by
marking the hearts of these 100 million for
His purposes for Israel.
Summary: In this Isaiah 62 Fast,
thousands of ministries will host daily prayer meetings with fasting— together we will mobilize over 1 million+ to pray for Israel AND for
the Spirit to mark
100 million intercessors on May 28 to see
God’s heart for Israel. IHOPKC is only one of
many HUBs hosting this Isaiah 62 Fast.
contains the longest recorded prayer of Jesus
in any of the Gospels.
Jesus prays this after
His final instructions
He is betrayed,

He closes the prayer by praying for
This intercessory prayer
is commonly called Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer.
The office of high priest was instituted
when God gave the Law
to the Israelites through
subsequently, his descendants
were chosen to be priests who were
interceding for Israel before God
(Exodus 28 – 29).
One priest was selected
as the high priest who would
Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement
to offer the sacrifice that would temporarily cover the sins of the people
When Jesus came, He offered His life
as the ultimate sacrifice that would
not only cover the sins of the people but
completely cleanse His people and save them.
Jesus is the ultimate High Priest,
and His intercession for us in John 17
is a wonderful,
multilayered example of His love.
As Jesus begins His High Priestly Prayer,
He reveals that His purpose
in coming to earth
was to glorify the Father
by giving eternal life to those who
believe in Him.
Although Jesus is God and was
with the Father
before the world began
He humbled Himself
and came to earth as a man so people
“the only true God, and Jesus Christ”
whom He sent
Now, the hour had come
when Jesus’ work on earth would
and Jesus asks the Father to glorify Him as
He prepared to finish the work
that would “give eternal life” to those who
believe in Him (John 17:2).
Jesus continues His High Priestly Prayer by praying for
The eleven who remained with Him
had accepted Jesus’ words,
knew that He is God,
and believed that the Father sent Him
Jesus talks about the Father giving the disciples to Him and the
disciples belonging to the Father;
Jesus and the Father
have everything in common
(John 17:6, 9–10).
Jesus mentions that
glory has come to Him through the disciples
Jesus prays that the Father would protect the disciples since
He will no longer be present in the world.
He prays not that they will be removed from the world but
specifically that they would be protected from the evil one
by the power of Jesus’ name (John 17:11).
Jesus says that
the world hates the disciples because
not of the world,
just as Jesus is not of the world
(John 17:14, 16).
But Jesus has given His followers
the Word and sent them
into the world,
just as the Father sent Jesus
Jesus prays that His disciples would be
sanctified by the truth,
which is God’s Word
and that they would be unified
After praying for
Jesus also prays for everyone who will
believe in Him
through their message
expressed in His High Priestly Prayer,
is that all of His followers would be in
just as He and the Father are in perfect unity
Jesus prays for believers to be in God so that the world will believe in Jesus (John 17:21).
When believers are united and
abide in God,
the world will know that God loves them and that
He sent Jesus for them
Jesus loves the world, and
His sacrifice that
brings eternal life is for anyone who believes
Jesus says He has given believers
that they may be one as He is one with the Father (John 17:22).
Jesus also prays that all who believe in Him will
be with Him and
Jesus affirms that, whereas
does not know the Father,
and He has made
the Father known to His disciples.
Jesus will continue to reveal God to His followers so that God’s love will be in His disciples and that Jesus Himself will be in them
Jesus says that He prayed the High Priestly Prayer because He was going to the Father soon and He wanted His disciples to “have the full measure of my joy within them” (John 17:13).
As our Great High Priest, Jesus continues to intercede for us (Hebrews 7:25), and His High Priestly Prayer is an example of
intercession looks like.
Jesus “is able to save
those who come to God
His High Priestly Prayer, with its themes of
unity, indwelling, glory, and giving, shows the
profound extent of that salvation.
